La Marche.. Républicaine…

I do not agree with what you have to say…

But I’ll defend to the death… your right to say it…

Voltaire

We marched today… “La Marche Républicaine”… on a day of national mourning. François Hollande… along with several heads of state including Angela Merkel of Germany… David Cameron of Great Britain… as well as other dignitaries… lead “La Marche de la Liberté”… the march of freedom…

Along with a million and a half of our fellow “citoyens“… with tears of sadness but also of hope… we chanted… “Charlie! Charlie! Charlie!“… while also singing the Marseillaise… and clapping in honour of the cartoonists of the satirical journal… “Charlie Hebdo“… who were assassinated along with 12 others… by unforgiving terrorists… who could not accept nor understand the meaning of… “freedom of speech”… which we in… Paris | France… believe in passionately.

The inpirational… heroic… brave… “Charb“… “Carb“… “Sallisky“… who refused to curb their satire… were willing to give up their lives… for freedom of expression.

Today’s march in Paris… the largest in French history… confirmed our belief that people will willingly give their lives… to safeguard “freedom”…

Without which… even Paradise…

Becomes… a prison.

Today the French people proved that… “Liberté Égalité Fraternité…” is truly the motto and values they live by and believe in completely…

In their name

Our valiant heroes… Charb and the Charlie Hebdo team… gave us the courage and pride in being French… by validating and enforcing our belief in the liberation from tyranny… fanaticism… and injustice…

“Vive… la Liberté”

Vive… la République“…

Vive… la France“…
